What is Homes4D&G?
Homes4D&G is the name of the common housing register for Dumfries and Galloway. The common housing register was launched in 2014 and is a streamlined process for applying for social rented housing in the region. In simple terms, the common housing register is a single computer-based waiting list which all partner landlords in Dumfries and Galloway will use to register applicants for housing.
Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP), Home Scotland and Irvine Housing have all joined together with Dumfries and Galloway Council to start this new process, designed to make it easier, and quicker, for applicants just like you to apply for social housing.
Complete one application form and you can be considered for housing with all registered social landlords working in this region who are part of Homes4D&G.
Dumfries and Galloway Council
Dumfries and Galloway Council‘s housing stock was transferred to Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP) back in 2003. The council no longer owns or manages social housing in Dumfries and Galloway, but it still has statutory responsibilities as the strategic housing authority for Dumfries and Galloway.
Dumfries and Galloway Council, alongside the partner registered social landlords, has a key role to play in the development and implementation of Homes4D&G. You can find out more about the council’s responsibilities for strategic housing here.
